Holidaymaker’s leaping crocodile photo wows Web

A giant three-legged crocodile has been wowing the Web after a tourist photograph capturing its freakishly large stature emerged online.

The striking creature named Brutus - which looks as though he is a special effect in a film - is said to be a starring attraction of a riverboat cruise in the Adelaide River, Australia.

Although some photos critics have questioned the legitimacy of the shot, the sightseer and the boat company have claimed that both the monster crocodile and this photo are indeed real.

At 80 years old, the 18ft-long saltwater croc can be seen leaping out of the waters of the Adelaide River to retrieve a slab of raw meat.

Bystanders in the photo look in awe as Brutus, who is believed to have lost his front right leg during an altercation with a shark, makes the awesome jump.

Katrina Bridgeford, who took the amazing snap, told the Northern Territory News: “When it came up out of the water there were a lot of Oos and Ahs. I wasn't expecting anything like this. I couldn't believe how close it got to us. If you had put your hand out you would have been able to touch it - if you'd dared.”
